Rustic French Table and Chairs

Have a great makeover for you today.  It all started with a 1970`s traditional table and chairs.

Love the fabric.
Hand painted and wax in ASCP Coco and Old White.
Love the pedestal base.
I just love this set as it sat in my living room for a month as I admire it.
Finally we have had warmer weather and snow melt! Its been a crazy winter here in Mo. and everyone is ready for warmer temps.
 Have a great week.

Iron Bed

I love antique iron beds. I usually share my furniture makeovers here but this beauty deserves a post of her own. I have had this iron bed for awhile hiding in the basement. I wasn't sure if I wanted to sell it and I thought I should paint her. I decided to dig her out and clean her up before I painted her. The more I scrub her up the more beauty appear. Perfect chippy paint! I step back and gave her a look and there was no way I was going to paint her!
She`s a beauty!
Just the right amount of "Chippy"
She`s a keeper and deserves to show her beauty in my extra bedroom.
I brought her a few years back for a very short song. I save her as she was going to the river the farmer said!
I love her!
Stay warm and a have a great week.
Our first full weekend sale is coming up at
February 7, 8 & 9.

Snow Days

Love the snow days of staying in to paint but hate this "polar vortex" cold. Its been so cold here in Mo. with about 10" inches of snow on the ground.
I`m excited to be painting and to join in with my blogs friends parties again.

Suitcase Addiction

Each year that goes by I try to organize my Christmas decorations as I put them away to make it easier to pull out each year. I came up with this great idea to salvaged vintage suitcases and store all my Christmas décor in them. This way was super easy to organize and the same time was simple to store and look great in my house décor at the same time. So to say I have a few suitcases is a under statement. I only buy clean vintage suitcases and probably been collecting for about 10 years. This past Christmas season my friends at secondhandchicmarketplace.com made a display of a Christmas tree in suitcases.  I was over the top in love at first sight! My mind would not rest as I knew I had to do this at home! First I had to empty all of my Christmas décor out of the suitcases and I couldn't get done fast enough. I don't live in a big house so finding a place was not easy. This is what I came up with in the living room.
I just love how it came together!
I love the vintage wooden rulers added as stars!
What you think?
Hope everyone is staying warm.

Happy New Year

This past year 2013 has been a amazing journey for me. I so thankful for my friends at secondhandchicmarketplace.com to invite me into there store. I have met some very talented and amazing women I now call my friends!

My blogging has not been the best this past year as my job, booths and markets have kept me very busy. I apologized and that's all going to change in 2014! The reason why its changing is my last day of work was December 28! I am officially RETIRE!
That means I can now work my business "Vintage Goods" full time! I`m so excited and looking forward to a exciting new year. I see many new adventures coming in 2014 and I`m really excited to share them with you!

Thank you for your readership, I really do appreciated you.

May you and your family have a blessed New Year.
